PetSmart Charities’ first National Adoption Weekend of 2017 ultimately ended up as one of their most successful to date. The event, which took place simultaneously at over 1,500 PetSmart retail locations around North America between February 17 and 19, resulted in over 24,000 pet adoptions.
“We are thrilled by the continued success of our National Adoption Weekend event where 24,428 pets’ lives were saved. Through this powerful effort between PetSmart Charities, PetSmart stores, our associates and thousands of adoption partners from coast to coast, we continue our commitment to helping pets find their forever homes and to serve as a trusted partner to new pet parents everywhere.”

National Adoption Weekends bring together PetSmart, PetSmart Charities, and over 3,000 animal welfare organizations to help find homes for pets. The events, held four times per year, result in an average of 23,000 pet adoptions per event. To date, PetSmart has helped provide over 7 million pets with new families through its adoption programs.
The next National Adoptions Weekend is scheduled to take place between May 5 and 7 at PetSmart locations across North America.
